This very famous herb has its origins in some of the most diverse and refined cultures in the world. These cultures sometimes revered Basil as being an herb of the gods and also for a medicine. Here at Indigo Herbs we have captured the very essence of Sweet basil in the form of an aromatic essential oil - Sweet Basil Pure Aromatherapy Essential Oil. This can be used for a variety of blends or even be used to repel insects.

The origins of this herb is thought to have originated in Asia (some say Africa) and brought to ancient Greece by the conquering Alexander the Great from India. Later, during the British occupation of India Basil was brought to the UK in the 16th century. It is mentioned in the Herbals of Culpeper, Gerard, Parkinson and Dioscorides where each describe it with qualities that are both esoteric and obscure. An example is Culpeper’s and Gerard’s description that Basil had had the ability to cure scorpion stings and if one was to over indulge it could make a scorpion grow in the brain! From this point Basil has had an association with the constellation Scorpio. In India Tulsi, or Holy Basil, is the name of a goddess venerated for her devotion to the god Vishnu and has become a plant that is worshiped in various ways of being a direct link to the god. It is said that if one clutches onto Holy Basil at the moment of death then the path to heaven is assured.

There is some disagreement as to the number of species of Basil since all plants of the species cross extremely easily with each other. To complicate matters there are other plants that have Basil as their common name. Basils are non-woody annuals native to tropical and sub-tropical regions of the world. It can usually grow to about 3 feet high with big fleshy leaves and flowering in spears of white flowers. Basil is most known for its use in Italian cooking and in condiments such as pesto.

This is a lovely way to perfume an environment and essential oils are very good at affecting the mood, mind and emotions when evaporated into the air.

Manufacture Process

Our essential oils are manufactured to GMP standards using steam distillation, extraction or expression. During steam distillation the plant matter is put into boiling water or infused with steam. The steam is collected and the oils are separated from the water. During extraction, a solvent is used to extract the oil, by creating a concrete. This concrete is made up of plant matter, resins, waxes, and essential oils. A second solvent, such as ethyl alcohol is used to extract the essential oils from the concrete, this creates an absolute. During expression the plant matter is pressed (at cool temperatures) to release the oils.

Product ordered, dispatched and received within 24 hours. Discount voucher for next order included. The only complaint I have is that the herb I ordered, Damiana powder Is the most disgusting tasting substance I have ever come across, no matter what I put it in. If you are considering buying it, get the capsules, I will for my next order.

I am a returning customer to Indigo …
I am a returning customer to Indigo herbs. All previous orders were without problems. On my current order I tried without success to input a voucher code. There was no place to enter the code on the site when I made my order on this occasion. I sent an e mail to this effect to Indigo herbs and the response was to say the least, not very helpful and no follow up to the customer. No phone call, no follow up e mail, nothing. I am to say the least very disappointed and may take my custom elsewhere where it may be most appreciated. The voucher would have saved me the postage costs to Ireland,but could not be inserted on this occasion. This Matter has been resolved and I wish to reaffirm the 5 star rating to Indigo Herbs.
